Orange Peel Chicken:
Orange Peel Chicken
Orange Chicken (Navin Rajagopalan) / CC BY-SA 2.0
Traditional orange chicken is first deep-fried, and then stir-fried in a lightly sweet soy-based sauce flavored with chopped dried orange peels. It is often garnished with vegetables, such as bok choy and baby carrots. The typical recipe used in American Chinese restaurants may use orange juice or fresh orange peel rather than dried peel and sugar, and often garnishes the dish with steamed broccoli and dried chili peppers.
